How can I play a game on one monitor and view the Internet on another at the same time? I want to surf this forum and play Bc2 at the same time but when I play the game it doesn't let my mouse carry over to the next screen,.

Thanks

Please use descriptive titles.

Try windowed mode or windowed full screen mode. I haven't played BC2

Should be in your graphics/display option section in the game

Sadly when an application is in fullscreen, if you move the mouse outside of the window and click, it will minimize the game.

As the others have said, you need to run the game in windowed mode. This can be changed using the "Video Settings" menu in the game. I'm pretty sure BC2 had the option to run Windowed, I don't have it front of my to check.

A quick search on Google led me to this article:

http://learnreverseengineering.com/2010/12/run-battlefield-bad-company-2-windowed-full-screen/

It shows you how to change to windowed mode, and even remove the Windows border around the game so you can play is in semi-fullscreen

Alt-Tab does work, but as soon a I click in game it opens it to full screen again. I will try alt-enter. Thanks.

To watch a youtube video without it minimizing from full screen while on your other monitor can be acquired by clicking the pop-out feature and maximizing it... Couldn't figure that one out until recently.. just some good info/thnx for rep

Thanks for the tip. I love dual screens, even though one is double the size of the other =P
